Resident foreigners accounted for 59% of all of the U.S. residential real estate bought by international purchasers, compared to 41% for nonresident foreigners. In previous years the proportions were close to 50-50. I couldn’t find any explanations for the change, but I would guess that the amount of immigrants and their financial capability has increased (providing more potential buyers), and/or the number of nonresident global buyers has decreased.
